Anglesey I would love to do but it’s just too far given I have two kids.

anyone bought these:

are they the right ones for the v6? Keen to replace all 5 badges on the car.

Would that clear the caliper? I know moving to a 343mm disc  (modest increase of 11mm on diameter over standard) means you have to be more careful with balance weight position.

I wouldn't be able to run a 16" with my 343 discs for sure!

Why would you want to do that? So little choice of tyre in 16, 17 by far the more popular size and tyre availability.

To try to run a wider front tyre, like a 245.

I'm not saying it is possible, just interested in opinions. Not sure if Avon ever made the ZZR 245/45/16.

Hey guys, any recommendations on tracks commutable from Guildford, Surrey. 

I have done goodwood and Silverstone.

brands is the obvious one I am missing, should I start with the Indy track given people saying lots of race cars will be on the gp circuit days?

any other circuits I should be considering - don’t want to stay away but happy to drive 2 hours to get there.

want to get a September date in to the diary.

Rockingham is just under 2 hours from Weybridge so wouldn’t be too much longer for you.  Good track, not to everyone’s taste but it’s great for improving technical driving. It’s pretty cheap too!

@BatMobile If you want a taster of Brands Indy I'm going to be there for the LOT evening session on Thursday 23rd August with a few friends. The LOT site is currently showing 13 places available. Not far for you to travel and an enjoyable circuit.

I am currently running 225 MPSC2 on the front and there is some rubbing on full lock. should be fine if you change the offset slightly.

@Crouchy are these rubbing the on the clam/wheel arch or on the inside?
